Our lovely 2 bedroom 3 bath apartment is located in the heart of Miraflores, just 3 blocks from the malecón (ocean walk). Enjoy a gourmet kitchen, large balcony, dining área and living room. Nice finishes and lots of light. Very comfortable!
Apt. is ideally located in the heart of Miraflores. Walking distance to basically everything the city has to offer. The apt. comfortably fits four people five if one doesn't mind sleeping on the goose down bed sized sofá (also very comfortrable).
Guests have access to all of the apt. except for the laundry facilities. Please, these facilities are reserved for guest preparation. Thank you for your understanding.
Interaction with Guests
My mother-in-law, Alicia will be at the apt. for your arrival and departure. She will show you the apt. give you the keys and anwer any questions you may have. She will be there for your departure as well to received the keys and to insure that the apt. is in order for the next arriving guest.
The neighborhood is cozy and quiet with its narrow tree lined streets (blooming yellow flowers in springtime) giving you the special flavour of old Miraflores. The neighborhood has many convenience stores (tiendas), there is a place to have your laundry done directly across the street! As well as many ambulatory vendors selling fruits and vegetables. A lovely área to walk about!
There is a bus stop at the corner of 28 de Julio and Ocharan (about 1 block from the apt.). The doormen are well informed also. If your spanish is good they can be of help.
Arriving from the airport, I suggest using "Green Taxi". They are located inside of the airport as you are leaving the Customs área. The price to the apt. should not cost more than S/.60 (about $20). Their rates are posted. No tipping is required. If returning to the aiport from the apt. just dial (phone number hidden) for Taxi Satelital. The address is pre-programmed and they usually arrive within 10 minutes.
Other Things to Note
If traveling within Lima and you wish to use a taxi, some basic rules to follow are:
Always negotiate the price BEFORE entering the car.
Price is always in Soles, always confirm.
No tipping is required.
Just a note if you don't like the price offered from the first taxi there is almost always another waiting behind.
NO parties or other people coming over that are not part of the stay agreement.
No smoking allowed in apt.
Please leave apt. as you found it.
We would appreciate it very much as we typically have guests arriving immediately after your departure. Thank you and enjoy!
